Many companies and organizations participate in our Adopt-A-Route Program. They select a route at a site near them, on a preferred day of the week, and agree to cover that route on a regular schedule—weekly, biweekly or monthly. They then recruit staff members to take turns delivering meals on a rotating basis. For example, if a business agrees to cover 1 route a week, and 8 employees volunteer to assist, then those employees can pair off and each employee only needs to deliver 1 time per month.
Participating organizations find it’s a great way to build teamwork and camaraderie, while instilling a sense of pride among their staff through community service - making it a beneficial partnership for both themselves and Meals on Wheels!
